Welcome to Wilgus Hall

Wilgus Hall, named after James A. Wilgus and built in 1963, accommodates approximately 230 women. Wilgus is located on the corner of Greewood Avenue and College Drive. Wilgus Hall is specifically unique because is an all-women’s residence hall. This living option offers a terrific opportunity for women to build a close community within the hall.  Each floor features a kitchenette and lounge area for the convenience of its residents. Wilgus hall has a newly renovated basement with study rooms, a computer room, laundry facility, ice machine, and offers The Lynn Collins Conference Room that features a TV and a kitchen in a large meeting and dining area.  The conference area is well utilized throughout the year by many organizations on campus.

Wilgus Hall sponsors an annual Women’s Weekend and Holiday Party. This event is open not only to UW-Platteville students, but to community members as well. The Holiday Party is the highlight event of Wilgus Hall that residents and the community looks forward to every year.


From the Desk of the Resident Director

Greetings everyone,

I hope you are enjoying your final days of summer and are excited to join us at UW-Platteville in Wilgus Hall.  Whether you are a new or returning student we are looking forward to having you join our awesome community.

I am also new to Wilgus Hall, but am no stranger to UW-Platteville or Residence Life.  I previously worked on campus in both Hugunin Hall and Southwest Hall as a Resident Director (6 years) and the Pioneer Involvement Center (1 year).  I love getting students connected with all the various resources and ways to get involved around campus - so feel free to stop by and ask!

If you are looking for ways to get involved within Wilgus Hall - you are in luck!  Every hall on campus has their own Hall Council which is a great resource for bringing residents together, working towards improving the hall, and building leadership skills within the participants.  Wilgus Hall Council has won past campus-wide leadership awards for the amazing programs and engagement we provide, so be sure to stop by and help us be the best we can be.

As we come closer to the start of the academic year be on the lookout for more information about move-in, Welcome Weekend, and various hall events.

See you all soon, 

John Sagehorn
